Jeonbuk Motors produced one of those ‘what happened next’ moments in the South Korean first division on Wednesday.

Former Middlesbrough ‘star’ Lee Dong-Gook was at the centre of the controversy, scoring with a chip over the keeper when he was trying to pass the ball back to the goalkeeper following an injury stoppage.

Unsurprisingly, the Jeonbuk Motors equaliser did not go down well with their Seongnam opponents, as a 2-1 K League Classic match was controversially wiped out.

Pushing, shoving and arm waving followed, with the Seongnam number 11 sent-off for pushing one of his opponents to the ground.

That didn’t stop Jeonbuk rightfully allowing their opponents to make amends immediately (almost), with goalkeeper Eun-Seong Choi smashing the ball into his own net to make the score 3-2.

That’s the way the score stayed, meaning the own goal ultimately cost Jeonbuk a positive result.
